That explains it. It should eventually go lower, but I won't hold out hope.
SG, don't you find the visual disparity between the treads and the landing too jarring?
I don't find there to be much of a disparity. The color and grain direction will be the same, and these are both flat sawn. Other than the fact that one is veneer, there isn't much concern.
Ps, before anyone comments on it (like this will stop that, lol) the blue marker is from the mill, everything is in the fit up stage, there is much to do from here out to finish the lower half. Even prior to moulding and finish paint.
And that rail will not be flush against the wall when finished
Any thoughts on dark grey tile for the basement?
Come on, man.
Can you explain yourself, rather than these three word, annoying as shit, piss all over everything I'm working on posts.
The way you're both soliciting advice and being reactionary and defensive is just turning everybody off. It would be tolerable, but to be honest, I don't think you understand design intuitively, which compounds the conversation's strain.
Well assuming you can match the colour, I do find the repeating grain distracting. It stops my eye at a place it shouldn't.
The color will match, the oil finish turns it that color, and at the moment the treads still have a mill finish.
screw the haters. I think it has potential.
The repetition is different, but I think when all finished, provided the colors match, it won't be immediately noticeable (well, to regular people) but will add something a little funky for those that pay attention.
lefty, out of curiosity, what would you do for a landing? solid walnut?
SG, don't take it too personal. You know the crowd here.
True, I need to head back over to the drinking thread.
Separate names with a comma.
